THE WIGLEY GROUP OPEN 2014 & GALA DINNER….A NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS – RAISE £14.5K FOR THE AFGHANISTAN TRUST

On 11 June 2014 The Wigley Group sponsored a Golf Competition and Gala Dinner in support of The Afghanistan Trust. Each competitor in the golf competition was paired with a sports celebrity for the match. A host of celebrities from the sports arena gave up their time and skills to make the day a success. The celebrities came from a wide range of sports including, Darts, Boxing, Golf, Football, Snooker and Cricket.
A big thank you to the Wigley Group, Rob Wigley and his daughter Katie and John McDonald who hosted the evening.
Meaning over the last 2 years The Wigley Group have raised over £25,000 for the charity.
What a fantastic result !!!!

WEEKEND OF THE EUROPEAN TOUR 3 MARITIM HOTEL BERLIN 19TH-21ST APRIL

I made the Quarter Finals in the third European tour of the year held at the Maritim Hotel Berlin in Germany over the Easter weekend.
I defeated Steve Douglas 6-2 hitting 2 x 180’s and outshots of 120 and 92 to set up a last 16 spot against Wes Newton.
I broke Wes’s throw immediately with a 107 finish and then scored 180, 140 and 165 to set up double eight for a ten darter to move two legs up.
Wes replied with a 14 darter and the missed 3 darts to level in the fourth and I finished on double eight.
Double 16 saw Wes cut the gap but I restored my cushion by taking out tops and then double 12 to lead 5-2.
I then landed my second 180 of the game to leave 56 in the eighth leg and hit tops for a 14 darter to seal the deal averaging 99.
I played Michael Van Gerwen in the Quarters and never really got in to the game losing 6-0 to the World Champion.
Phil Taylor won the event defeating Michael Van Gerwen 6-4.
